Nice hotel but location is a bit far away

The room is nice and the staff is very helpful to satisfy all our requests e.g. assign us a sea view room on higher floor, reserve table for us in the restaurant, check the train schedule to the airport etc. However, it really spent time to travel from the hotel to the city.

Currently, this is the best hotel that we have ever stayed at in Japan, Hong Kong and even America. The service was second to none even though there was a slight language barrier. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Osaka.

Very good hotel

Good size room, bigger than regular Japanese hotel. Very clean and bright. The hotel staffs speak good enough English, and very helpful. The hotel located a little out of city center, but we used JR train to go sightseeing a lot, a couple extra stops is not problem. Overall, is it a very good hotel. I will rate it as 4 star hotel.

The best Value at Universal Studios Japan

This is the place to stay if you're taking your children to Universal Studios Japan , their prices are unbeatable , the rooms are very nice , the staff are helpful , the only draw back is their room service is poor . Also they have no low fat milk offered t breakfast but I hope they correct thus issue after this review . And I would love to see them add more English channels on thir TV screens .

Good value in Osaka

Having just come from a luxury international hotel in Tokyo, my expectations were high. This is a family-oriented hotel meant for Japanese-speaking tourists visiting Universal Studios (which we didn't). The room was clean and comparatively large by Japanese standards. The bed (a king) was very firm, but comfortable. The room was sparse (no chair or desk). The front desk staff spoke little English, so my rusty Japanese had to suffice. Access to the JR line was easy--a few hundred yards walking outside and across one street--and there was a great "mall" at the station that was part of the park experience. Two stops to the JR Osaka Loop line, and another three to Osaka station (about 10 minutes total). Using the JR Rail Pass made travel a breeze to this hotel, and was one of the deciding factors for choosing it. The room price was reasonable for the proximity to Osaka. The hotel experience itself was nothing special, but it was a solid value and easy to stay there. I noted that there are at least two other very large hotels closer to the same train station, though I cannot compare value or amenities.

There is a huge "mall" at the station with a large variety of dining and entertainment options. There is also a Lawsons market with sundries and snacks open 24 hours.

Universal Port Hotel great value!

After spending close to 2 weeks in Tokyo (at 2 different hotels) we took the Shinkasen train down to Osaka and used Osaka as a base for trips into Kyoto. I chose Universal Port because it had rooms that would accomodate the 4 of us and by Japan standards it was reasonable. It is right next to the train station and Universal City. The staff was great, and they spoke English pretty well, especially the bellhop who we enjoyed having him teach us proper ways to use the Japanese words that we knew. After the expensive hotels in Tokyo, it was refreshing to have free internet in the room as well as extra computers in the lobby. We only went to Universal one night (which was plenty of time to enjoy and it is 1/2 the price of a day pass) but went to the shopping center leading to the entry gate several times. We went there not to shop but to enjoy the variety of restaurant choices. We had to laugh that the one channel that had English being spoken (outside of BBC world news) had the Jaws movie, 24-7. Probably due to the link between Universal Studios and the hotel?

Get the tickets for Universal right from the hotel and save time in line. I don't think I would have enjoyed the park as much if we had paid for a day pass (approx. $60.00 per adult) instead of the night pass we bought for 1/2 price. The roller coaster is awesome! I have lost a lot of my equilabrium for rides since getting past 30, so the Spiderman "ride" right after Back to the Future ride simulator almost did me in.
